Where can I find information on the relationship between drugs and Islam?
I’m writing a research paper for my history of Islam class about the use of psychoactive substances in Islam, but I’m having trouble locating scholarly sources.
Topics I intend to cover are:
-The Qur’an and alcohol
-Sufis and the use of hashish and caffeine
-The opium trade in Afghanistan
-Modern attitudes towards drugs in the Muslim community and rates of use
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, additional suggestions for points to research would be appreciated as well.
This question is in the General Section. Responses must be helpful and on-topic.
